I”m sure you”ve heard the criticism- “If Islam is a religion of peace, then why don”t we ever hear any Muslims speaking out against the terrorists and extremists?” Well, if you”ve been paying attention, you probably already know that Muslim leaders speak out all the time, and that often their comments are poorly reported in the mainstream media.
Next time someone asks the question, you can send them to The American Muslim, where Founding Editor Sheila Musaji has compiled a collection of statements and quotes from Muslim leaders doing just that:
- Muslim Voices Against Extremism and Terrorism –
- Part I: Fatwas
- Part II: Statements by Organizations
- Part III: Statements and Articles by Individuals
